During my lifetime,I've seen lots of new inventions that were going to "change the way mankind lives". Microwave oven, Segway scooter, digital everything, GPS, cure for polio, and the list goes on...
I am living amongst the dumbest creatures that ever walked the face of the earth.
The Laws of Nature continue to remain consistent after thousands of years.
If a human can't build a fire, navigate by the sun or secure drinking water......... These new inventions will go the way of the cassette tape player.
----------------Total crap! It takes more than gizmos and tech to make a sniper. It can't compensate for breathing, position, trigger pull, and etc. Plus, if they really wanted to get to you, they would and have used a drone.
Something like that with such sophisticated electronics has and will continue to malfunction, and then who is going to take the shot?
I posted this thread to prove to my mother that you will never replace the training(countless rounds) that go in to making a human,...a machine so to speak. Of course the mind being our machine that will never be replaced by a machine. Whew. That was a mouth full.
She brought this up and now, with all the variables I tried to convey to her, she didn't want to talk about it anymore(of course she said the latter with a huge smile and said it in a whiny voice) love that woman. Anywho, I agree with all who find this contraption cool....but yes, a theoretical "tool" that functions on the range very well...aka..without taking fire.
Good talk fellas. I can show my mother that I am not the only one who thinks like this.
During ranges and quals in school we shot anywhere between 200- 300 rounds a day. Not gonna lie, at the end it took everything I had to not anticipate recoil. And my eye was so tired looking through 10x that it bounced around like a pinball on meth.I shot more practice rounds of ammo (.308Win/7.62x51mm) out of a bolt gun, than I ever did with a machine gun. Just about every other day was range day and even in the reserves it was the same. That's why I've never been recoil shy. RNGR1
